Well, if you're sure you've passed the Q&A part, as long as you write decently and stick to the 5x5 format you'll usually pass. If for some reason it comes back with a fail on the essay and you're sure you didn't mess up the format, you can pay $40 more to have it re-assessed. In every case I've heard they pass the second time. Either way I doubt you'll have an issue.

My larger quandry is that its been 25 years since I had to write an essay, and while I remember the major points, I plan to be doing a lot of essay writing in the near future as I complete my degree and move on to post-grad, so I want to be sure I really master my writing.
Anyway, congrats on finishing the test. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your PASS result!
